HTL Projects

Our projects are a highlight of the specialized engineered timber products industry. We take part in many national projects throughout New Zealand, as well as international projects. HTL has the capability to create unique and custom beams for projects with competitive pricing options.


See below some of our recent projects.

Motueka Public Library, Motueka - Tasman

Designed by JTB Architects and engineered by AMK Ltd, this building is environmentally friendly with low-carbon and energy-efficient timber materials included in many aspects of the design.

HTL’s H-LAM™ beams are visible from the exterior and
interior of the building, providing an aesthetically appealing look with timber to encourage a relaxed atmosphere.

Cawthron Institute, 

National Algae Research Centre - Nelson

Designed by JTB Architects and engineered by AMK Structural
Consulting Engineers. HTL were involved from an early stage in
assisting with advice on what was required to be achieved for this indoor sea spray environment, advising on connection materials, durability, timber treatment, and timber coating system.

HTL Glulam purlins and girts were used within this build to support the lightweight cladding system.

Falcon Brae Villa, Motueka Valley - Tasman

Falcon Brae Villa is the result of a dream-like vision designed to integrate the structure of a luxury villa against the backdrop of the breath-taking natural environment of the Motueka Valley, perched perfectly between national parks.

The ‘Falcon’ in the name resonates through curved elliptical falcon-wing roofs made of HTL H-LAM™ which are a feature of this highly bespoke building. Each roof frame was set up in the HTL factory and transported to site.

Sabine Road, Richmond - Tasman

Built by Bruce Design & Build, they choose for HTL  to manufacture New Zealand Larch Vertical Shiplap, for its cost-effective natural appearance.

HTL’s sawmill milled the New Zealand Larch and dried the timber with our onsite kilns.


HTL machined the larch into our cladding profile HTL51, then machine coated with Dryden WoodOil “Lite Oak” for a contemporary finish.

Emerald Faaurfushi Resort & Spa, Faaurfushi Island - Maldives 

HTL are pioneers in Glulam (H-LAM™) fabrication, leading the way in supplying local and international markets. HTL supplied curved beams and rafters for this beautiful resort in the Maldives.

HTL were involved from an early stage in assisting with advice on what can be achieved and different cost options, in particular working on the GL8 curved beams and rafters.

Kaikoura Civic Centre 

Architecturally designed to represent a giant cray pot, the Kaikoura Civic Centre resists lateral loading through Pres-Lam walls spread around the structure. These walls are also the first cross-laminated timber (CLT) use in a Pres-Lam structure. To provide strength where required, LVL was used in
critical regions of the CLT, another first for New Zealand.

The Civic Centre has won awards for the innovative use of timber, resulting in a distinctive technical/structural solution in a residential, commercial, industrial, or public building environment.


Upper Hutt Railway Station

Opened in November 2015, the Upper Hutt Railway Station was the long-awaited replacement for the commuter city's main transport hub. The station was designed by Studio Design and Architecture’s Wellington studio.

HTL supplied GL10 glulam (H-LAM™) and LVL componentry, fabricated the portal frames, and supplied the LVL purlins cut to length and drilled.

Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology

HTL re-manufacture LVL fabrication, leading the way with the Arts & Media Building, Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology.

HTL re-laminated all the LVL which produced massive holt LVL beams, columns, and rocking sheer walls. Stressed skin floors were also manufactured in conjunction with Potius Flooring.

Waitomo Caves Visitor Centre

Waitomo Caves visitor center, Waitomo, was designed by Architecture Workshop and engineered by Dunning Thornton.

HTL Group worked very closely with all parties on this project to achieve some very complex laminated and fabricated components with varying twists and curves.
